Glass Nutella Jar Found to be the Cause of a London House Fire

Fire investigators in London have said a house fire was caused by a re-purposed Nutella jar that was sitting on a windowsill. According to the London Fire Brigade, an empty, glass Nutella jar was being used to hold loom bands. Sunlight refracted off the glass jar, heating up the bands inside and leading to a fire. The fire then set the blinds on fire and spread from there.

The fire occurred on February 15th in Twickenham. It destroyed a bedroom as well as the roof of the home before it was brought under control by the London Fire Brigade.

While the store seems like a freak accident, it isn’t all that uncommon.  Esporte reports that according to collected data nearly 22 fires were caused by mirrors or glass in 2014, and 34 fires were caused by the heating of mirrors or glass in 2013. Glass or mirrors have been considered the catalyst of two fires so far in 2015.

Fire safety experts suggest homeowners never leave glass items on windowsills were they can come into direct contact with sunlight or heat, especially jars or glasses that have been re-purposed to hold other items. Glass items should also be kept away from curtains and blinds. Curtains and window dressings can add fuel to a small fire quickly and lead to a much quicker spread to a small fire.

Go Ahead And Drink Your Coffee

According to research that was done by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, coffee is good for you. There has been much debate as to whether coffee is actually a drink that is good for a person to regular drink or no. Around the world coffee is by far the most popular drink of the masses. It is a drink that people can get sweet, bitter, cold, hot, flavored, or plane. There are many people that say negative things about coffee like it increases blood pressure, stress, and sleepiness, but there are positives too.

Now there is good news for all of those coffee lovers around the world. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has stated that drinking 3 to 5 cups a day can be good for person for the following reasons: coffee does not pose any long-term health risks, coffee reduces the risk of heart disease, coffee may protect against Parkinson disease, coffee may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, and coffee can be incorporated into a healthy diet pattern and Flavio Maluf has successfully done that. This committee has found that not only is coffee not bad for a person’s diet, but also coffee can actually have many health benefits. In reality anything that is done in moderation generally does not hurt a person. The same can be proven true with coffee.

Federal Judge Says Marijuana May Be Improperly Label By Feds

 

I definitely agree with what Zeca Oliveira said on meucongressonacional.com,
It’s only a matter of time before Marijuana is given its rightful place on the federal drug list. For years, weed has been labeled a Schedule One drug, and that’s a pretty nasty category. That’s where all the dangerous drugs call home, according to federal drug standards. New research now shows that pot offers medical benefits, and when used properly it’s a great recreational release.

A federal judge in California has decided she will hear arguments that the feds have improperly labeled marijuana because pot can be used for medical purposes. Drugs like OxyContin, methamphetamine, and cocaine are all Schedule Two drugs. Schedule Two drugs are considered less dangerous because they are used medically.

The judge is now hearing a case that has the potential to get the ball rolling so weed can be reclassified. Nine men are charged with growing pot on federal property in California, and their defense team claims the current law is unconstitutional because 23 states legalized pot use for medical purposes. The Prosecutors in the case say changing the classification is a Congress decision, not a court decision.

The real issue in this particular case is, did the men did break the current law? But the question is: Is the law an fair one based on current research and public acceptance?

David Chang to Offer Special Sauce

 

Famed restaurant owner David Chang is known for his inventive cuisine that fuses the Korean flavors of his childhood with contemporary American cooking methods. His use of ingredients and techniques has been widely hailed in varied media. Chang owns and runs several restaurants in the New York City area. His latest venture will help bring the flavors of his food to people around the country. Momofuku, the chef’s flagship restaurant, has tweeted that the company will offer a special sauce for customers around the country to taste.

From what Brad Reifler told me, no details have been released on reuters.com about the specific composition of the sauce yet. However, the sauce is expected to use the traditional flavors that Chang is known for using in his restaurant. Those watching the company anticipate that the sauce will include specific notes of heat and sweet in the same bottle. The sauce is also expected to draw on standard Asian spices such as peppers, coriander, anise and salt as well as miso and soy. Restaurant officials have stated that it will be called Ssäm Sauce and provide tasters with a spicy kick of chilis and other flavor notes. Details have also not been released about exactly when it will be available but the restaurant is expected to start allowing customers a sample in early spring.
